LAS VEGAS — Nudity will be encouraged at tomorrow evening’s Erotic Heritage Museum tour in Las Vegas.
In celebration of Valentine's Day, visitors are invited to explore the exhibits in whatever state of undress they feel comfortable with. The museum has dubbed the special event the “Lover’s Lane” tour.
The guided tour will be led by the museum’s director, Dr. Victoria Hartmann.
“Nudity is the most natural of physical states, and we encourage each person to express their natural selves at the museum this Wednesday," Hartmann said.
Alluding to Valentine's Day, Hartmann said: "What better day would there be, to enjoy the sexual sciences, and to do so free of the societal restrictions on our bodies?”
The Erotic Heritage Museum houses more than 24,000 square feet of permanent and featured exhibits.
The museum is an assemblage of some of the most important sexual artifacts, tableau and interactive exhibitions in the world. It also includes lecture and classroom space.
The museum's ethos is that sexual pleasure and its depiction are natural aspects of the human experience, and that such celebrations of individual human sexuality — that of pleasure — must be made available to all, regardless of gender, race or belief.
Those wishing to participate in this year's "Lover's Lane" one-hour tour should arrive at the museum by 6 p.m.
Guided tours take roughly an hour, said Hartmann, noting that while nudity is encouraged, sexual activity is frowned upon.
